Kickstarter - Isometric Map-Making (Battlegrounds Games)

"Developing new features to support isometric mapping in MapForge AND creating a wealth of top-notch isometric mapping content Add-Ons."

I've been following and supporting Heruca / Battlegrounds Games for over a decade at this point. It was one of the first virtual tabletops I encountered, and Heruca was always available to answer questions and had quick responses when I needed support.

I was an early backer of Mapforge and seriously need to set some time aside to get back to playing with maps again. I find such to actually be therapeutic and relaxing. Free time in retirement isn't as free as I thought it would be.

Isometric maps, like the ones found in many DCC RPG adventures, are a beauty to behold and tend to spark my imagination more than standard 2d maps.

The Isometric Map-Making Kickstarter is being run to upgrade the original Mapforge mapper to isometric mapping options. How fucking cool is that?

The 5 buck backer level is for owners of the original Mapforge. It gives all stretch goals and helps fund the upgrade. 33 bucks gives you the original Mapforge program plus and 24 add ons. Not too shabby at all.

Need a mapping program? Mapforge may just be your cup of tea.


  1. By request, five new limited-availability pledge levels have been added to the Isometric Kickstarter campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/battlegrounds/isometric-map-making/posts/2684820

    The more you get, the more you save.

  2. The MapForge Isometric Kickstarter campaign has funded!

    Not only that, but two Stretch Goals have already been unlocked, and a third is tantalizingly close.

    If the campaign reaches $7600 in funding (just $346 more), that will mean THREE free isometric content Add-Ons for everyone. It looks like maybe 10-15 more backers would do the trick. The campaign ends in 21 hours.
